We've said it once (or twice or 38 times) and we'll say it again. The thing that makes MHA the best is the consultants who call MHA home. They're rockstars. We cherry pick the most experienced, detailed-oriented and impassioned to join our crew.
Galit Marks exemplifies that trifecta and more.
As an MHA consultant, Galit works with home health and hospice agencies through EMR implementations and optimizations, documentation assistance, QAPI, and joint commission projects. A lean six sigma yellow belt, Galit helps agencies gain efficiencies quickly.
Prior to her role with MHA, Galit held positions as a hospice nurse and hospice executive for the largest non-profit hospice in the U.S. In the latter role she on-boarded new team members to Homecare Homebase and developed business development and marketing strategies to tackle the competitive hospice market.
Galit is a registered nurse with a bachelor's degree in nursing. She's currently working toward her PMP certification.

What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to travel. I've been to twenty countries so far. Additionally, I love to read. You can often catch me reading a book on my backyard hammock.
Why are you passionate about the work you do or home health and hospice care? Hospice and home health play such an important role in our society. The services ensure our sick and elderly are cared for compassionately. I take pride that my job centers around helping agencies adjust their practices, optimize their processes and adhere to new medicare regulations--all so they can further the good work they do for patients who need their care.
What trends/challenges/opportunities do you see in the industry? If there's one thing that's certain in healthcare, it's change. Regulations, demographics, community needs--you name it and it's been changed, is changing or about to change. I foresee more stringent home health and hospice medicare regulations, which will require agencies to look toward outside resources for help. Agencies need to find efficiencies they haven't been able to find themselves to adhere to tighter regulations and budgets.
